A winter moisturiser works as a warm hug for your skin on a very cold day. You need it to add lost hydration and moisture back into your skin and keep it there. An effective moisturiser will also make sure that you don’t have to deal with dry patches on your face. And no matter your skin type (we are looking at you, oily-skinned girlies) a moisturiser is an absolute essential to maintain the lipid barrier and integrity of your skin in winter.

We went ahead and rounded up the top winter moisturisers available in India and sorted them out for you based on price. So, whether you are on a budget or in the mood to splurge, you do not have to compromise on quality. Scroll down to check ‘em out…
